    chomp (my $guessed_platform = `/bin/sh '$config_guess'`);

I asked upstream (not for the first time) to revert their gratuitous
switch from `...` to $(...). I hope the maintainer does so.
(I bcc'd you.)


Is bash a standard part of Solaris 10? That seems ... strange.
There's probably some other Solaris shell that supports $(...)?
Maybe just /bin/ksh? I can't check any more. --thanks, karl.
